Forget New Year’s resolutions…This year I’m scheming a writers’ revolution.
Scribblers, let’s shake things up out there.
Are you with me?!
If so, grab a megaphone and repeat after me:
“In 2010, my goal is not to get an agent and publish a book. My goal is to grow and learn enough to write a book worthy of esteem, a book worthy of the best agent and the most discerning publisher. I take this oath as a sacred trust, and I shall toil until my manuscript shines like the sun and lays waste to the spurn of rejection.”
Viva La Revolución!
Hungry for more?
Try my homemade Chocolate Lava Sauce. You’ll need more than a few spoonfuls on hand to get through all the pints of Haagen-Dazs you’ll scarf down while hunched over the keyboard this year.
Chocolate Lava Sauce
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. cocoa
2 Tbsp. light Karo corn syrup
2 Tbsp. vanilla
1/4 cup cream
Combine all ingredients except vanilla in a medium saucepan. Bring to a gradual boil. Do not scorch, but allow sauce to boil for two minutes. Remove from heat. Add vanilla. Allow to cool slightly.
P.S. Congratulations to Jemi Fraser, who won a copy of Gil’s All Fright Diner!
